UA Cossatot Hosts Women’s Self-Defense Workshop
April 11, 2019
UA Cossatot hosted a women’s self-defense workshop on March 25 through March 29 on the De Queen Campus from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM offering women the chance to learn tips, pointers, and advice, about self-defense tactics.
UA Cossatot offers a variety of classes and workshops for college students and community members.
The women’s self-defense workshop was taught by David “Kick” Griffin and J.P. Atkins. The workshop was free and offered through UA Cossatot’s Center for Student Success and Continuing Education Program. Nineteen women signed up for the workshop, and UA Cossatot is making plans to host this workshop again next semester.
The Workshop is designed to help individuals grow in confidence, improve safety skills, work on fitness goals, get more educated, and enjoy social interaction with others.
“It was a lot of fun and very informative. I now feel confident and unafraid while out alone. I encourage any woman wanting to protect herself to take this class,” said workshop attendee Lizz Garza.
In addition to receiving self-defense tools, participants received a certificate and were encouraged to share their hands-on experience with others.
Workshop attendee Eda Lopez said, “It’s really exciting and cool that UA Cossatot has fun things like this to get involved in. I had fun participating in the workshop, and I feel it was a good use of my time.”
